Early life[edit]

Seymour was born in Nashville and spent his first nine years in the United States before his father's job took the family overseas, first to Dubai for eighteen months and later to Belfast.[1][2] He attended Down High School.[3]

Rugby Union career[edit]

Amateur career[edit]

Seymour was drafted to Marr RFC in the Scottish Premiership for the 2017-18 season.[4]

Seymour has been drafted to Currie in the Scottish Premiership for the 2018-19 season.[5]

Professional career[edit]

He plays for Glasgow Warriors in the Pro14, having previously represented Ulster.[6][3] He was named in the Pro12 Dream Teams at the end of the 2014/15 and 2016/17 seasons.

International career[edit]

Qualifying to play internationally for Scotland through his Glasgow-born mother,[6] on 24 October 2012 he was named in the full Scottish national team for the 2012 end-of-year rugby union tests.[7][8] In November 2014 he scored two tries from interceptions against Argentina and New Zealand and followed it up with a try against Tonga.

In April 2017 Seymour was named as one of two Scottish players selected for the initial British and Irish Lions squad to tour New Zealand in June and July.[9] While not featuring in any of the test matches he appeared in four games on tour scoring one try against the Highlanders and two tries against the Hurricanes. His three tries meant he was the leading try scorer on tour.
